The Real Easter Bunny, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization. For over 30 years, the founder of the organization has provided age and gender appropriate Easter Gift baskets to every child who is a patient at Children's Health, Children's Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. Approximately 25 years ago, the program was expanded to include any child that visited the hospital for a doctor's visit on Good Friday and children that are residents in Gateway Family Shelter in Dallas. Each basket includes age appropriate entertainment designed to occupy the time of each child in a hospital environment. We create approximately 1,000 baskets each year and the average cost of each basket is $15.00 - $25.00. We also provide "Special Needs" baskets for children who have been confined to the hospital with chronic illnesses for over 1 month. Many have spent the majority of the past year as patients. These baskets are tailored to the child's interest and ability. They are identified to us by Child Life specialists. The average cost of each of the Special Needs baskets are $50-75.00 each. Each basket contains age specific items including Color Books, Crayons, Puzzles, Games, Book, Plush Stuffed Animals and Bubbles. The Teen baskets also include art supplies, journals, hats, card games. School Age baskets include paints and art paper, hats, flash cards and age appropriate toy. Pre-School baskets also include hats, a toy, flash cards and draw/erase boards or books. Toddler baskets are carefully screened to be sure that all items are appropriate for children under 3 years of age. Toddler baskets also contain a toy, hat, balls and sippy cups. Infant baskets are designed for infants up to 6 months old and contain receiving blankets, bibs, hand held toys, pacifier, booties and small stuffed animals and book.
